A: Pale golden-orange with a one finger white head. Quickly receded and left spotty lacing.
S: Bready with some soft herbal hops. Not the typical grassy/citric hop profile one expects from a german style pils.
T: Again, bready malts and soft herbal hop bitterness. In the end, the profile is a bit to rich and dense for my liking.
M: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Lacking the crispness and refreshing character of traditional german pilseners.
O: Suffers a bit from the bulky body and lack of a refreshing finish. Not a bad beer by any means, just not what I’d want to drink when reaching for a pils fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2012
while the description seems to emphasize the hops, i didnt really get an overtly hoppy flavor here. which is fine by me as im not into hop bombs. i think maybe the rye balanced it out, which im a big fan of. some toffee and butterscotch notes with a mild woody earthy note throughout. the finish is a bit off balanced and odd, but not unpleasant. id like to try this again sometime.

12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of corn and light piney hops. Taste is light bitter. Pine hops and corn with a little bready malt. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and an average finish. Overall, not bad. Would be a great beer for drinking outside in the summer. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2011
Bottle from my sister for my birthday. Brilliant orange pour with decent rocky white head. Grainy aromas with earthy grassy hop aromas. Flavours are slightly sweet with subtle hop finish. Nice easy drinking beer. jeff789 (1423) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Very spicy aroma, rustic golden with a smaller white head limited retention and lacing... a little grassy... definite rye flavor, grassy, light sweetness... medium thin body...

12oz. Bottle (at 5.5%ABV per the Bottle): Aroma of pils malts, noble hops, and corn. Poured amber/gold in color with a small, creamy, white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Many medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, noble hops, and corn. Light to medium body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Malt, noble hop, corn finish is lightly dry.

Pilsner is not my thing and this is no exception. Tastes and looks like a Pilsner, which is no bad thing, it’s just that I’m not keen on it!! bluevegie (3938) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2011
Grainy in the taste, golden body with decent head, a bit of grass in the aroma and then also comes through in the taste. Drinkable. DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Can’t comment on this beers looks, as I drank it out of the bottle. nice malt structure, soft and bready, medium sweetness. Light citrusy hop flavors, medium bitterness. Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2011
This brew pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and fruit. Light body with flavors of bready malt, grain and lightly floral hops. The finish is sweet and malty. Pretty average overall.
